The Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) has been making rounds around the rumour mill as of late, and now the device has made an appearance in the GFXBench benchmark database.
The GFXBench listing doesn’t mention the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015), but it is listed under the device’s codename, which is “Huawei Angler.”
Now lets get to the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015)’s leaked specs. According to the listing, the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) sports a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). This confirms what we’ve been hearing from past reports. We’ve also learned from past leaks that the said device will measure 159.4 x 78.3 x 6.6 / 8.5 mm, which indicates that the phablet will not be slim, but not be bulky either.
The listing reveals that the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2 GHz, four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, and an Adreno 430 GPU, under the hood coupled with 3 GB of RAM.
The listing also reveals that the phablet offers 24 GB available internal storage. This suggests that the device will come with a total of 32 GB of on internal storage. The listing did not mention whether or not the device would come with a microSD card slot, but, since 2014’s Motorola Nexus 6 did not come with the feature, we’re not exactly confident that this year’s Nexus 6 will either.
The listing reveals that the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015)’s camera combo consists of a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera that will be perfect for snapping selfies.
Here’s something new. According to the listing, the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) will come with a barometer, meaning the device can take advantage of apps or features that measure atmospheric pressure.
The last piece of information the listing has to reveal is the version of Android pre-installed in the Huawei Nexus (2015). It is listed running Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box. This isn’t at all surprising, since new Nexus devices are always the first devices to run a new version of Android.
We have also learned that the Nexus phablet will sport a fingerprint scanner on the rear case, but the GFXBench listing does not mention this.
So when will Google lift the lid on the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015)? Google will be hosting a press event on the 29th of September. We’re expecting the search giant to officially announce the device at the event alongside the 5.2-inch LG Nexus 5X. We may also see a new Nexus tablet (Nexus 8) make its official debut at the event, but it remains a mystery which manufacturer is behind the rumoured tablet.
According to past reports, the two new new Nexus device will ship to people who pre-ordered the phablet on the 13th of October.
